Dolph Schayes and the Rise of Professional Basketball

Dolph Grundman

Cloth $24.95    |    978-0-8156-1040-3    |    2014


"A simple, detailed account of what has become an American pastime/obsession, from when the ‘cord was cut.’ Reading Grundman’s work will leave you a smarter basketball fan, and make you feel warm and comfortable, making mental memories as you learn how the names you may only have heard about, come alive, and give eye-witness accounts on what these legends were truly like."—Utica Observer Dispatch

"Dolph Schayes is an all-time basketball great, a Syracuse institution, and the embodiment of the NBA’s transition from a small-time, regional league into a modern, international phenomenon. He gets his due in this biography by Dolph Grundman, a historian known for unearthing basketball’s buried roots."—Aram Goudsouzian, author of King of the Court: Bill Russell and the Basketball Revolution

"Grundman skillfully captures the early years of the NBA, an era of excitement and struggle, filling a gap in pro basketball history, a history that encompasses the life of one of the greatest players of all time, Dolph Schayes."—Murry R. Nelson, author of The National Basketball League: A History, 1935–1949
